Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

September 2014

Whew.  That had to be the fastest summer that ever wasn’t that we have ever seen. Seems like just yesterday that school closed for the summer, Carol was eagerly anticipating a visit from her son and family, and the resumption of classes was such a l-o-n-g time away.  And here we are, at Labour Day Weekend, the Port Perry Fair is on, and school starts up around here on Tuesday.

Liberty WoolWhat’s new at the wool shop?  We have some lovely new yarns – Liberty Wool from Classic Elite.  This is a superwash wool in a worsted weight, perfect for warm woolies in the winter, and quick gift items!  There is a pattern book which offers a selection of projects ranging from hats to sweaters.

Estelle Andean Highland

We also brought in a line called Eco Andean DK Wool from Estelle.  This is 100% undyed highland wool, and comes in four beautiful shades.  At 100g/350m for only $11.00, this may well become your favourite DK wool!  Imagine a fair isle sweater in these colours – beauty AND warmth!

Misti Alpaca

We also brought in three new colours of Misti Alpaca Handpaint Sock Yarn!  These will make fabulous cowls or scarves for gift items, so better hurry in for best selection.

Woodrow

Finally, Woodrow from Estelle has arrived.  Looking for a chained bulky wool for arm knitting?  This is your best option – it is colourful, lightweight, and soft. 

Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.  

Crochet Baby/Adult Hat -- September – For that special someone in your life (or yourself!), we have a cute little hat planned.  Class will meet on Thursday mornings, beginning September 4, from 10-12:00, at a cost of $20 plus materials.

Upside Down PonchoJapanese Upside Down Knitted Poncho – September – Remember when Barb’s husband brought home a pattern book from Japan?  Barb is decoding the directions for an adorable lace poncho – but it’s not your 1960’s poncho.  Brought into the modern era and knit in DK weight yarn, this little beauty will be an excellent layering piece for three seasons of the year!  Cost is $20, plus materials. 

Double-Knit Mittens – October – Our class in October will teach you the technique of double knitting – which sounds extremely difficult, but is in actuality very doable by every one.  The mittens are totally reversible, and very warm.  These would make excellent holiday gifts, if one were so inclined.  Carol will also start work on a double-knit vest, while Barb continues work on her double-knit car coat.  Come join the fun and learn to double-knit yourself!  Classes are held on Tuesdays, beginning October 7, from 1-3:00 pm or 7-9:00 pm.  Cost:  $25, plus materials. 

Linen Stitch CowlNovember – As the holiday gift-giving season closes in, our thoughts turn to projects which can be completed quickly but still look intricate and difficult.  This Linen Stitch Cowl is the answer – you could even make one for yourself if you so desired!  There’s plenty of time.  Classes will be held on Tuesdays, beginning November 4, from 1-3:00 pm or 7-9:00 pm.  Cost:  $25 plus materials.

Great American Aran Afghan – This project will generally be meeting on the third Sunday of each month, providing there are no holidays on the specified weekend.   This month, the designated Sunday is September 21, at 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm.   Pre-registration is required.

Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale, and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian Cardigan on page 104.  Carol and Barb are still working on their cardigans, although both have become distracted by other pretties.  Inquiries as to the status of these cardigans will help to remind the girls that they need to focus.

Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again!  An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons.  We are planning this class to begin in January, after the frenetic activity of the holidays, and to be meeting on a weekday morning.  Please let us know if you are interested!

Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
